My favourite characters in any drama are the bad boys that turn out to not be so bad after all. Once you get through their evil tendencies there is a good person struggling to get out. Also they're usually sexy as hell. As a new years treat I thought I would lay out a list of my top ten lovelies that fit into this category.
Tied for 10th are Eric Northman (Alexander Skasgard) and Jamie Lannister (Nikolaji Coster-Waldau). Eric started out as an extreme dick who was only out for himself but over the course of seven seasons proved that he really did deeply care for Sookie and wanted to do right by her on numerous occassions. Jamie Lannister too was arrogant but his capture and the resulting journey with Brienne of Tarth and his relationship with his younger brother redeemed him somewhat in my eyes.
Killian Jones aka Captain Hook (Coline O'Donghue) from Once Upon a Time takes the top spot on this list. The charming pirate began as Cora's sidekick determined to get his revenge on Rumpelstiltskin no matter who got hurt in the process. However, after meeting Emma Swan that all changed, Season three saw deeper into the man's past and shows that although he was labelled a pirate he always tried to be a noble man.
